Opportunities in the Diocese of Worcester
Upcoming Clergy Vacancies
The Diocese of Worcester is committed to mission in every aspect, seeking to bring the good news of God's love in Jesus to all who live in the cities, towns and villages of our richly diverse diocese, and to make the gospel relevant to their everyday lives. Every congregation is encouraged to reflect deeply on what the Kingdom of God might look like in their situation and work together to build it. Bishop John has identified love, compassion, justice and freedom as the kingdom values which set the tone for mission and outreach. Worcester has recently become the regional centre for New Wine's South and South West Region, and we are excited about what God is doing here.
We have clergy vacancies coming up in churches full of people ready to engage in transforming their communities, who are committed to the Kingdom People vision, and wanting to be open to the Holy Spirit. Could you be called to join with them and serve God as a church leader in the Midlands?
